Great Food, wine and beer. tight space.

We went to this restaurant with a group of 7 people. parking was good and the places is quite easy to spot (it used to be a Long John Silver or something like that). The place was crowded and we had to wait about 15-20 minutes at the bar for a table to be available. Our food took a while... read more

We eat at Lefty's every few weeks and have been doing so since they opened several years ago. They have a unique and interesting menu. Definitely try the side of red cabbage - yummy. And the Reuben and the Cobb salad - I could go on. They have been adding to the menu with gourmet specials. I had lamp chops... More

I wish I could like lefty's more. It's a fun place to grab a drink outside in the summer time and for the life of me I can't understand why their brunch is always so slammed. Pretty subpar food from Bfast to dinner. But if poorly executed American food is your thing, god speed.

We stopped in for breakfast on a trip home. It was amazing! Probably one of the best omelettes' I've ever had. Very fresh ingredients and good portion sizes. Bread selections were interesting. I tried raspberry coconut, which had a consistency similar to a pound cake. It was incredible. Friendly staff and good coffee too! Definitely a breakfast stop to hit... More

I've been here several times and I'm always surprised by the quality and variety of options. Service is always great...quick and knowledgeable of specials and they pay close attention to details and special requests. The food is top notch and brunch is especially yummy. The restaurant was a Long John Silvers in its previous life and it's interior reflects that...look... More

nice cozy breakfast place. recently visited Leftys for breakfast with some local recommendations. they have a good breakfast menu, even accommodating vegetarians. our breakfast was served hot and with little waiting time. our waitress was great and was frequently checking on coffee. the breakfast was so heavy we ended up not eating lunch that day. well worth the money

Lefty's is a fairly small diner, which doesn't look like much when you get inside. Don't let that scare you away. The food here is very good (especially the breakfasts), and the service is friendly. I highly recommend it.

This is not a very big restaurant so don't be surprised if there is a bit of a wait. However, even on Sunday morning of VT parent's weekend it only took about 20 minutes to get a table for 4. Our server was pleasant and was helpful with menu choices for our daughter who has a temporarily limited diet. The... More

This was our first visit and we sat outside on the patio. We ordered chips with curry sauce to start and it was different but good. We ordered one salad and two different burgers. The salad was a bit pricey for what was on it. The burgers tasted like they were home made on your own grill which was nice... More
